Not only have Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana had to pony up over a hundred million dollars in fines related to charges of tax evasion (and are still involved in litigation for hundreds more), now prosecutor Gaetano Ruta has called for two-and-a-half years of jail time for the embattled designers.
Spring had most definitely sprung this weekend, and the fashion crowd dressed for the season at Dolce & Gabbana‘s Fifth Avenue flagship soirée. These six women in particular looked right on point.
Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re sniffing Desire by Dolce & Gabbana.
As far as holiday-themed YouTube videos go, we didn’t think anything could top the DMX-mas rendition of “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer”, but that was before Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana released this psychedelic masterpiece of season’s greetings.
Azealia Banks is no stranger to controversy. Her Dazed & Confused cover was banned in seven countries for featuring a blown-up condom and no small amount of innuendo, her lyrics are pretty much the opposite of G-rated, and she’s earned herself her fair share of haters in the rap game. But while provocation may be a-ok in her books, racism is another issue entirely.
Yesterday’s Telegraph ran an enlightening story on Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, in which we learned about their amicable romantic break up, pill-popping habits, and sordid respective pasts as a dancer and a Catholic priest.
All good things must come to an end, and for Dolce & Gabbana, the smaller, younger D&G brand is just one of those things.
If you thought everyone in the fashion industry was impressed with Prada‘s multi-billion dollar listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, you were wrong. Giorgio Armani dismissed rival Miuccia Prada‘s new business venture as nothing more than a clever way to cover up her debts. He also called her clothes ugly.
When it comes to red carpets, there’s a lot of talk about dressing one’s age. But amidst all the hemming and hawing over sleeve length and decolletage on display, there’s one woman who always manages to break every so-called rule without, well, breaking a single rule: Helen Mirren. Case in point: the leather and leopard get-up she wore for the european premiere of Arthur.
If Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana didn’t pay taxes on over a billion dollars in income, what would they do with that money? Buy a villa? Start a diffusion line? How about invest a few liras into the fourth (or seventh?) comeback of everybody’s favorite pop diva, Britney Spears?
Let’s be honest: Scarlett Johansson is pretty incapable of looking straight up bad, but we were pretty torn on her look at Sunday night’s 82nd Annual Academy Awards. Johansson walked the red carpet in a purple lace and column cut frock by Dolce & Gabbana, which she paired with a messy ‘do, burnt orange eyeshadow, and a huge statement ring by Anna Hu.
Because the world needed to be reminded that beautiful things happen outside of New York Fashion Week, Dolce and Gabbana cast Naomi Campbell for the new installment of its Animalier eyewear campaign. The pictures were taken by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and they’re stunning. And we mean stunning.
Last night, Jennifer Aniston, Brooklyn Decker, and Nicole Kidman stepped out to celebrate the premiere of “Just Go With It.” And while the movie looks passably entertaining, the fashion was anything but.
And now, this morning’s billion dollar question: Have designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana really not paid several hundred million euros worth of taxes, or is Guardia di Finanza (Italy’s answer to the IRS) just getting a little slap happy?
There’s really no getting around the fact that model David Gandy is a good looking guy. He is professionally attractive, after all. But for all his meticulously cultivated facial hair, natural good looks and a stomach that looks like a supple leather bag full of warm stones, the model just can’t talk to women.
Is there anything worse than showing up to a party wearing the same thing as someone you don’t know? Yes, there is: showing up to a party wearing the same thing as someone you do know. That’s why Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry text each other before they appear publicly to make sure they aren’t wearing the same thing.
There are streets that young designers dream about — Fifth Avenue in New York, the Champs-Elysees in Paris, and London’s Saville Row. And now, thanks to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, young designers in Italy can sell their wares on Milan’s Via Spiga.
On the 25th anniversary of her supreme fabulousness in the modeling industry, Naomi Campbell sat down with the good people of Grazia to tell them write a name poem about her time in the business. It’s probably the most creatively conducted interview we’ve read this year.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are no strangers to the soccer field — or to its locker room, for that matter — but until now, they’d only made clothes for Italian athletics franchises. But WWD reports that the design duo has signed a three-year contract to outfit England’s Chelsea football club.
Like leather shorts, we totally thought old models would be gone before we could make another agist quip. But then those folks over at LVMH have never met a trend they didn’t like — and it seems they haven’t lost their taste for the seasoning
